PUR Water Flavors Pitcher: Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed, congratulations to Luv to Save, comment # 41 who said: blog follower as ethelluvtosave at gmail.com Thank you to everyone who entered!
I am diabetic, so sugary fruit juices, sodas, and even carb laden but good for you milk tend to drive my blood sugar levels sky high. So in an effort to maintain good control over my sugars, I often end up drinking a lot of water to stay hydrated. But drinking plain water can get rather boring to the taste buds after awhile.

Then I tried a new product from PUR Water and I am loving their PUR Flavor Options!

What is PUR Flavor Options?
  • PUR Flavor Options is the first and only filter for tap water that lets you add a touch of sugar-free, calorie-free fruit flavoring to your water.
  • PUR Flavor Options was named “Household Product of the Year” by Product of the Year USA in January 2009 and comes in raspberry, lemon, grape and strawberry.

About PUR Water Filtration:

  • Environment & Money: Switching from bottled water to filtered and a reusable bottle can eliminate up to 3,200 plastic bottles and save one person up to $600 annually.
  • Health: The EPA estimates that approximately 20% of Americans’ lead exposure is attributable to tap water. PUR filters are certified to reduce many contaminants, including 98% of lead, 99.9% of microbial cysts and 99% of pharmaceuticals.
  • Philanthropy: With each purchase of a PUR filter, a donation is made to Children’s Safe Drinking Water which has, to date, provided over 1.5 billion liters of clean water to needy children and their families around the world.

What I love about PUR Flavor Options:

  • No calories and no suragr or carbs but lots of flavor.
  • Clear flavored drink, I can drink as much as I want without having to worry about staining my teeth, something I worry about with diet colas and ice tea.
  • 4 different flavors mean I can change and try new flavors all the time.
  • You can switch out the flavor cartridges, just keep the opened ones in the refrigerator.
  • You can decide how intense you want the flavoring to be by choosing how many times you push a button.
  • You add the flavoring only when you want. If you don't add the flavoring, the water you pour out will be pure and filtered, with a great clean taste.
  • Use your own reusable bottle for portability and cut down on wasteful one use water bottles.
  • Inexpensive way to add more variety into the beverages I drink.

Suggestions for PUR Flavor Options:

  • The pitcher is smaller and holds less than another brand of water filtration pitcher that we also own. The PUR Favor Options water pitcher holds 7, 8-ounce glasses of water but it seemed like I had to refill it a lot. BUT on the upside, it actually fit in our fridge door unlike the other brand's. I'd like the option for a larger pitcher as well as the space saving one currently available, cause some of us like big glasses at a time.
  • I liked the lemon flavoring a lot, it tastes like water with a lemon slice in it. The raspberry flavoring tasteed a little bit too artificial to me. But it is still pleasant tasting and a flavor I'd buy again, I just like lemon a lot more.

Overall:

Excellent value for your money that provides a lot of variety. It's good for your health, good for the environment, and the pocketbook. It's a win win all around☺

Why choose Pur? Well - we are a water drinking family and I'm not a fan of tap water. Soooo....that's lots and lots of bottled water! Granted we recycle but I would love to be able to save some money and have a Pur pitcher....

I like healthy water with flavor & so does my 2 yr old. I think this will be great for her - it is like tricking her that it is juice :) without the sugar!!!

I'am a pre-diabetic and coming from a family of diabetics. I need to drink more water! But plain water gets to be so BORING! I love the thought of having 4 flavors to choose from to make water tasty! This would do the trick for sure.

My own reason~
Flavord water in a "cool" pitcher would impress my kiddos and they would surely drink more water!
